This is a 24-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of the effect of thalidomide and placebo on CSF (cerebral spinal fluid) and plasma biomarkers in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease. This study will evaluate the effects of 24 weeks of treatment with Thalidomide on plasma biomarkers.
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||"Twenty-Four-Week, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel Group Study of the Effect of Fixed Dose Regimens of Thalidomide and Placebo on CSF and Plasma Biomarkers in Patients With Mild to Moderate Alzheimer's Disease
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Improve cognition [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
| Estimated Enrollment:
| Study Start Date:
| Estimated Study Completion Date:
| Estimated Primary Completion Date:
||December 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
fixed dose over 8 clinic visits
Other Name: Celegene
A lumbar puncture will be done before treatment (baseline), and at 24 weeks to collect CSF for the quantification of biomarkers. As an exploratory effort, we will test the effects of thalidomide on the same biomarkers in the plasma and will determine if detectable changes mirror changes observed in the CSF.
